Dear Daily Work Friends, 

Daily Work is fast preparing to host nearly 250 supporters for our biggest fundraiser of the year—the Steps to Success Luncheon on May 2, 2018. You should have received your invitation in the mail!

The Steps to Success Luncheon generates nearly half of Daily Work’s annual operating expenses. There is no angel donor or large government grant. Daily Work exists because generous people like you believe in the potential of our job seekers and invest in the life-changing, employment mentoring services that help them advance into living wage jobs and personal and professional growth opportunities. 

The best part? Daily Work works! Each year more than 200 job seekers develop their careers at Daily Work for the low cost of just $650 per person, less than half the cost of similar programs! Thanks to you, in 2017 we connected more than 200 low-income job seekers to more sustainable jobs that put them on the road to moving out of poverty forever.

But Daily Work is not done yet. As the low-skilled job sector constricts and other jobs require higher and higher levels of technical skill, customer service, and writing and math abilities, Daily Work continues to mentor our committed job seekers to develop skill sets and careers that do more than just pay the bills.

Are you excited yet? If so, here are three ways you can help more job seekers this year. 

  1. Mark your calendar and join us at the luncheon on Wednesday, May 2  No cost to attend!
  2. Invite people you know, who care about our community, to join you at the luncheon and learn more about Daily Work
  3. Connect us with a business or individual who can sponsor the costs of the luncheon, so that every dollar raised goes directly to serving job seekers. Sponsorship start at just $250.

I am  thrilled to have you as a part of Daily Work; we simply couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for your support.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to call me at (651) 204-3043.

Julie Hoff, executive director
